Wayfinding encompasses the ways in which people orient themselves and navigate to their destinations on campus. Signage is one of the main components of wayfinding on campus. All signage, including wayfinding signage, is designed to be usable by all people without adaptation or specialized design.


Ensuring that all people can navigate around campus is vital to creating an inclusive physical campus. Accessible wayfinding and signage benefits a wide variety of people who would otherwise not be able to easily orient themselves in space on campus.
